I enjoyed my stay here - the room we stayed in was small but clean with a great view. Perhaps a little dated but location definately made up for it. Right beside the beach, 2 minutes from the Strip and 10 minutes from the train to the Old Town. Staff were plesant and polite and the pool was lovely, if a little cold! Didn't eat in the hotel's restaurant […] but the food did smell lovely any time we passed! Overall, it was a pleasant stay, best probably for couples and families.

"Great location but needs improvement"
A nice resort, if a little dated. The rooms were large, but I had a very old uncomfortable bed, there was only one fan, and not in the bedroom, and compared to friends in other rooms with flat screen TVs and DVD players, I had a fuzzy old TV. The pool was nice, and the poolside bar, but the food was below average. Great location with lots of beaches […] to explore. Charging 20 Euros to hire a safe for a week is theft.

"Will keep going back"
A fantastic hotel. We have stayed here 3 times now over a period of 14 years both as a newly married couple and now with young children and can confirm it is good for all age ranges. The facilities are great with easy access to a lovely beach a nice pool (although at the start of the year is very cold). The rooms are well kept with a maid service every […] other day. The sauna is good and having links with the sister hotel means you can use the gym. Location is good as it's right next to the strip for local restaurants and entertainment. It's only 40 min from Faro airport and esay access to the rest of the Algarve. Would and do recommend. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great location at the beach"
This hotel has many plus points: ideally located; well kept; well maintained pools; excellent staff; family friendly. Just one drawback (and it's not a major one) is the sheer size of the place. It is a bit like a maze and finding our apartment the first time was challenging! We thoroughly enjoyed it and we will definitely return.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Banging hotel for everyone--especially students!"
We decided to visit Albufeira for our spring break (we are 4 female University students), and were suspicious of how cheap the prices of Clube Praia da Oura were. We thought it was too good to be true, especially after looking at all the beautiful pictures. There is absolutely NO CATCH, and it is just a phenomenal establishment. The staff was infinitely […] friendly, and the amenities were superb. We went from 17 March to 21 March, and though there wasn't really anyone in our age group (it was filled mostly with older couples), we still had a blast! Going out in the Montechero Strip and Old Town is very easy (about a 5 euro taxi ride away), and laying out in the sun during the days was awesome. We highly recommend this place, and plan on coming back next year! Make sure you check out Restaurante Da Enzo and the Mexican restaurant near Da Enzo--delicious!

"Graet location for the coastal walks"
My wife and I had a marvellous 11 nights at the CPO. Everything in the room was not brand new but the apartment provided all of the comfort and equipment we needed for an excellent self catering holiday. We did not have a sea view but the gardens outside the balcony were very well kept and the palm trees gave an exotic setting. This apartment was a […] great base for the walking and outdoor holiday that we had planned. There was ample parking space for our hired car which enabled us to reach coastal walks further afield.

This is a very large complex with lots of facilites, pools, nightlife and a Bowling green next to a Bar which has a fabuous sea view. We had a Studio apartment which was fine for two weeks but for a longer stay I think I'd choose a one bedroom. Our room was a little dated but still provided excellent value for money. We'll be going back!Genuine Expedia guest review
Couldn't fault this place... Next to beach! Close yet far enough from strip not to hear it at night. Everything thing would have been 100% till we tried to ring room service. Realised our phone didn't work.. Then all of a sudden the staff were rude and English was an issue! Shame took the shine off what otherwise was an unbelievable stay.. If u don't […] mind sleeping on a plastic mattress protector Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Lovely weekend(s) in the Algarve"
My boyfriend and I have stayed here once before in November of 2012. Both visits were great. The staff is very friendly and there is a very good room service menu if you don't feel like venturing out in the rain. The beach is stunning with panoramic views of the coast and the strip is right up the hill. There is a great club 2 minuets from the center […] of the resort as well. The breakfast was very good too; British style (as we reside in Canada [eh!]). As for the rooms they are a bit older but have this great charm to them. The furniture is bright and airy completing the feel of the apartment. Kitchen is missing only one thing: a coffee maker but other than that is was well stalked. The one thing that we did not enjoy was the bed this time around. It was very hard so we put some of the extra blankets down and that seemed to do the trick. Please don't let the bed turn you away from this hotel! It is beautiful and a great Portuguese treat! Make sure to walk the beach as far as you can go as the views are beautiful. Enjoy.

"Close to the beach at a quieter end of town."
For those with reduced mobility the hotel is on a hill but you can reach the beach and the main bar area "the strip". Ask for easy access when you book the room so there are no steps. To walk to the old town talks about 1 hour (but is good exercise). We had Christmas lunch at the Oura Priaya Hotel (sister hotel next door) and that was very good.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Perfect. Would return in a heart beat"
We both loved our stay here. The room was compact but had everything we needed and more including everything required to cook a meal within the room. Our room was at the end of the hotel over looking the sea which was stunning to wake up to. Shops and restuarants were about a 10 minute walk, but in good weather, it's not a bad walk. We went away for […] a weekend in November so can't comment on the pool and with it being this time of year it was nice and quiet. Very happy! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
stayed many times and will go again ,best and most helpful staff in the world, especially Maria on the hotel desk, in a great position on the beach ,ideal winter break , but it would be too hot in the summer .Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"close to beach and local amenities"
Very pleased with our stay. We found the apartment to be well equipped and extremely good value. Only downside for me, would have preferred something facing sea - but this didnt spoil our stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Holiday Apartment in Portugal"
The studio apartment was on the small side and while we requested a double bed there was only a couch type single bed with another pull out bed underneath, which we ended up taping together and it was not that comfortable. Had we been staying for any longer we would have complained.Genuine Expedia guest review
Exactly what the pictures tell you. Fab location if you like to be very close to the beach.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Superb beachside location"
A superb room directly facing the sea. I didn't even have to hire sun loungers. The hotel had lifts to enable you to easily get back to it's sister hotel across the road at the top of the hill. A well positioned hotel to suit all ages.Genuine Expedia guest review

The Hotel and Location was great the rooms are a bit basic and the beds awful but as i said the location , and complex itself are very very niceGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great Location but rooms lets this hotel down"
We stayed 5 nights at this hotel August 2012. When we arrived we were very happy the reception was very modern and nice, and the staff were very friendly. I had the impression the hotel was not to big but i found out when i went to get to my room their where hundreds of rooms and only 1 pool that i seen, a bit busy for my taste. The room itself was […] big as was the balcony, however very dated and the bathroom could do with a total redecorating. No air-con. and towles where only supplied every 2 days. The plus side to the appartment block is its very close to the beach which is a lovely beach and along it their is some great spots for a bite to eat and a drink. Also the main party streeet is only 3 or 4 mins walk away in the evening, but far enough for peace when its bed time.The old town is a 30 min walk away or 5 mins in a taxi only 5 euro. Overall i will not stay at this hotel again but i would stay in the area again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Lovely place but TOOO HOT!"
The only problem with this hotel is no Air Conditioning. This is a major problem! It was so hot in the bedrooms it was difficult to sleep even though the windows opened. Also the excursions were good but the problem was that the coach left too early to come back and there was no choice to get a later coach. For example excursion to the water park we […] got the 9am coach there but had to come back at 4pm even though the park didn't close until 6pm! This was rather annoying as it was expensive to get into the park and we would like to make the most of the time. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
The only good thing about this hotel was its location. That alone wouldn’t be enough for me to book this again though. Rooms are way to small and not what specified. No air-conditioning either. Clothing go stolen out of my room and was not replaced. They refused to accept breakfast was included in the price, even though it was. Worst of all the staff […] are so unhelpful and extremely slow at doing anything. I was waiting 1 hour in the queue to check in, even though there were only 4 people in front of me. If you had any questions for reception following that, good luck, you’ll be waiting another hour. I would absolutely not recommend this hotel to anyone ever. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Lovely complex in perfect location"
Just back from 2 week family holiday in CPO - great location right beside Oura beach. Our apartment had fabulous sea view with a large balcony and was very quiet. The complex is in an ideal location, grounds are very attractive and well maintained. Our 2 bed apartment was spacious and cleaning service was very good with fresh towels every day. Lovely […] restaurants in immediate vicinity along by the beach and within walking distance of the strip if you want something livelier! Choice of water activities on the beach - paragliding, banana boats, pedal boats etc. Only negative is lack of Air Conditioning in apartments but good fans provided. Also, usual problem with guests putting towels on sun loungers by the pool early in the morning - but we prefered the beach anyway. Will definitely go back to CPO.

"Old and worn"
The complex is very large and due to the location of our apartment we had a long walk to get off site. The complex is not suitable for persons with mobility problems as there are steps everywhere and although there are very many rooms ours would have been inaccessible without climbing stairs. As there is no air conditioning in the rooms and we had some […] very warm weather where it would have been very much appreciated. Because of the way the apartments are designed with the only access through the patio doors there is little opportunity to ventilate the apartment at night and some were sleeping with the doors left open to anyone something I could not do. We bought trips through the hotel but then found we had to walk varying distances to bus stops to pick up the coaches. Usually trips are picked up and dropped off at the hotel where you book this is not the case here but we were not told till after we had bought and paid for the trips. There is currently building work going on and you have to walk in the road watching out for the traffic when going to the temporary reception or shop. There were advertised facilities which were not available either.The cleaning staff are very good and efficient but still cleaning an old complex. We liked Albufiera but not this complex.

"Cheap and cheerful!"
My husband and I stayed in a Studio room at Clube Praia da Oura in May. We had very cheap rates and therefore were happy with our accommodation. The studio room was tiny with a couch that converts into a bed. The facilities at the hotel were very good. However, I would not recommend the area of Praia da Oura. The beach area is quite nice, however the […] streets just inland from the hotel are full of rowdy clubs and pubs. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Despite the fact that the reception and surroundings of the swimming pool were still under construction, and given we asked for a double - and got two singles - we absolutely loved this hotel. Staff are friendly, rooms are awesome, the views were amazing - and the neighbourhood is fun. There are a few stags/hens groups that dominate the streets, but […] if you get into the fun it's a whole heap of laughs. Had an awesome time. Will definitely return...... ps - thanks for the hot weather too :-) Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

The hotel was amazing and the staff was really polite and helpful.The room was tidy and clean and we had a complimentary bottle of wine as an apology for the construction works around the hotel.For this reason we were unable to use the swimming pool but the staff told us we can use the one in the nearest hotel,which was great.Overall,no complaint whatsoever […] and we're definitely coming back next year,big Thank you!

"good, well-run hotel"
Generally a well run hotel, good beach-side location and a good stay. The main variable is location of room - we were unfortunate to have a north-facing, roadside room, so no sun on the balcony at any time of day and some disturbance with noisy neighbours and guests coming back late at night, plus constant background traffic. Still had a good time […] though! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

Very conveniently located.Older hotel but ongoing maintenance and cleaning keep it acceptable.Grounds are lovely and well groomed.Direct beach access is a great positive asset to this hotel.The staff is polite and helpful.

"Clube Praia Da Oura New year 2011/12"
The hotel is very well located next to the sea but you need to be careful as there is a backside to the hotel with little or no view as well as one block that is completely seperate from the main part. Best bits to ask for are overlooking the pool or the sea. Hotel is undergoing a lot of refurbishment and alterations at present. Staff were very pleasant […] but servicing of the rooms was ad-hoc at best. Done very well but chaotic, having no towel changes etc for a period of 4 days then changed two days on the run??? Beware that the studio rooms have two single beds, one folds under the other for storage and is difficult to put up and take down if you are not able bodied. Studios are functional but a little cramped in terms of storage, cooking is an experience as well as there are two electric rings and a microwave/grill. Nevertheless, very clean and a superb holiday. Beware that Petchey leisure who own the hotel are into Timeshare in a big way and have their own points based "Infiniti" programme which they do approach people about. It may suit your needs, it did not suit ours and that is very much thanks to the likes of Expedia who give us such good deals. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Great value and location"
Wasn't sure about it at first as it is a huge timeshare complex. DIdn't need to worry though, the appartment was superb, the staff friendly and helpful, the location excellent and the value for money, unbelievable. We had breakfast in our deal, but probably wouldn't bother next time, as the appartment has a well equipped kitchen, and the breakfast, […] although plentiful, got a little bit 'samey'. There is entertainment most nights, a good happy hour when a large beer is only just over a quid, and free wifi in the lobby. We shall certainly be returning at some point. Highly recommended!
